New Steam ports working again (PK 2.9.444)

Hello everyone! In case you have tried to install a Steam port recently, you probably received the infamous error “Content servers unreachable”. Well, don’t worry. That bug was just fixed :)

Update the Porting Kit for the latest version (2.9.444), and newly created Steam ports should work like a charm. The fix is made by PK during the port installation. In case you have any port with the bug, reinstall it with the latest version, or, if you prefer, you can fix it manually.

You can update PK by pressing Porting Kit -> Check for Updates….

Vampire the Masquerade Las Vegas vs Popular Slots

Vampire: The Masquerade-Las Vegas is a browser slot game, using the setting of the popular video game, Vampire: The Masquerade. The developer company White Wolf and Foxium had struck a deal to license the Vampire game for a slot machine game, in 27 January, 2016. In November 2017, they released Las Vegas, a 5×3 slot game themed around Vampire, featuring a vampire and his prey in a modern Las Vegas setting.

The Basics
Vampire: The Masquerade-Las Vegas takes its theme from the RPG computer game, Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines. The computer game was highly acclaimed as one of the best RPGs and it’s titles being continued seems a good idea for it’s fans. The Las Vegas slot game has an advantage than other games, because of it’s well knows developer White Wolf. The theme is dark and gothic and it creates a fantastic playing atmosphere. The graphic details are phenomenal and occasionally rain drops hit your screen. As always, the video game has shown to its fans a well written story and all of its characters give an impact to the player. The same happens to the slot game Las Vegas. It begins with a story and you have to keep playing in order for the story to progress.

The game is played on a 5×3 grid with various possible matching sequences that can help the story progress. Just like in-game, there is a Blood bar and a Disciple bar, disciple is a vampire power in-game, that helps interact with the people more easily and by using vampire powers. Discipline, in Las Vegas, is listed as Pick Me bonus title. When the Disciple bar or Blood is full, based on how you played the slot game, a new sequence appears that can trigger a free spin.

The Cons
The Vampire: Masquerade-Las vegas has a real good rating for it’s originality unlike the other online slot games. Unfortunately is only a very few online casino websites including its developer. The popular slots games, like Lucky Lady Charm, Book of Ra and so on are even more well known than Vampire, because they are found not only online, but also outside of the screen, in slot bars and physical casinos. But not everyone is a fan of vampires, most people don’t even want to hear about fantastic creatures, and most of the gamblers like to play the popular ones, because they are easy to play, unlike Las Vegas that requires different type of spins in order to achieve a story progression. The Admiral Casino has the most popular slot games in its reserve. And has a higher popularity because it’s everywhere, outside in the world and also inside, on the screens of its users.

GOG.com updated your personal library, download the “Offline Backup game Installer”!

It looks like GOG.com updated their game library encouraging the GOG Legacy client. However, this are not the files Porting Kit uses. You need the “Offline backup game Installer” file(s). Using the GOG galaxy setup files will result in install failures. So make sure to use the “Offline backup game Installer” only! We will implant a feature in Porting Kit that recognize the wrong GOG.com galaxy files and will ask to download the correct ones.

I already asked them to at least expand the option, so you can see the file instantly so you are able to download it.

Red Alert and Red Alert 2 Wrapper update!

Red Alert and Red Alert 2 Wrapper update!

Update 6-June-2018:
We fixed an Engine extract failure which some people experienced. That should work properly now with latest update yesterday. So if you experienced the issue. Try again and it should work fine now.

====

I have done lots of stuff for Porting Kit this weekend. Lets start with Red Alert and Red Alert 2 :)

Red Alert:
Red Alert was working quite well already but had after longer game-play a habit to crash or loose the mouse capture in especially multiplayer or skirmish games. That problem is addressed in the latest Wrapper update of Red Alert and works stable as never before! If you have Red Alert installed then it is is required to trash the wrapper in Porting Kit on your local tab, and reinstall it on your server tab.

Red Alert 2:
Red Alert 2 has a long history as well with all kind of changes from stability also due to Origin’s updates. You may have read the news I fixed the Origin Client issue earlier last week. Now this past weekend I took the time to test the latest Winestaging engine and it seems to run remarkably good. I earlier used a specific mod and extra files to get some better performance, but still it would crash regularly. I tested with the latest Wrapper update and I played 1.5 hours in a row without a single crash. It even doesn’t require any manual actions (adding files or using mods). So finnally we have a stable build of this game. Eager to check it out? Get the C&C Ultimate collection cheap here… and start play this game again!
